Hi Bella,bellaandre said:If I had to say what the best way is to sell more books at iBooks (and most of the other retailers, too)--and they confirmed this from what they see with authors who break out on iBooks--I'd probably say that putting the first book free for a limited time period can often give you a boost across the rest of the books in your series. That's what initially made the difference for me at iBooks back in 2011. And I'm also a big fan of Apple's pre-order system because pre-orders factor into first day sales.
Ditto! I have 5 books still at Smash that I use to get to iBooks but I'd love to move them all across. No way would I risk losing all those lovely reviews though.Phoenix Sullivan said:Being able to transfer reviews would be awesome. I have one silly title left on Smashwords from 2011 because I can't afford to give up the 500+ reviews on it.
Thanks Megan! I'm really excited!!!! I love iBooks anyhow, and have done well there, so I can't wait to talk to the rep. The funny thing is is that there is a way for all of us to proactively submit our books for consideration to be featured with them. I ran across that info when I was searching for something else. I never did it, though. I was going to get around to it, but thought that they probably wouldn't pick me. Guess I should have tried it!MeganBryce said:Congrats, Annie! You're so downbeat about it, just slipping your news in here...I had to start a whole new topic.
